Inclusive competitiveness™

A 21st-century bridge to economic inclusion and growth.

Bolster your region's economic competitiveness with a shared vision and strategy of Inclusive Competitiveness™: Improving the competitive performance of underrepresented populations. 

ScaleUp Partners provides experienced insight and expertise to help regions build a diverse pipeline of qualified workforce and entrepreneurial talent. We assist local leaders and stakeholders in identifying value hidden in urban and rural blind spots that can be scaled up to improve job growth and overall regional economic competitiveness. ScaleUp Partners is the nation's only consultancy serving to connect economically disconnected and underrepresented populations to local innovation ecosystems and existing Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) planning.

From where will underserved Americans’ new jobs, wealth and enterprises come if underserved Americans
don’t create them? It’s time for us to catalyze an Inclusive Competitiveness Movement.
— Johnathan Holifield, Co-founder, Scale Up Partners & architect of Inclusive Competitiveness™

Infusing inclusion across the country

In 2013 ScaleUp America, a platform of ScaleUp Partners, made a commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative to catalyze job growth and improve local economies through the lens of innovation, inclusion and impact. We continue to carry out that pledge in disaffected communities around the country. Learn how to infuse innovation and inclusion in your community.
